DISGUSTING

DISGUSTING

The title of this article says it all.  I plan to keep this short until the front office makes some seismic changes.  There were two roster moves that may help the club incrementally.  Otto was activated from the DL and Tom Murphy has long at last joined the big club.  But the Colorado Rockies continue to ride the same old stuff letting Ryan McMahon rot on the bench while keeping Raimel Tapia down in Albuquerque.  They continue rolling with the same ineffective bullpen arms in late and close situations.  When is this going to end.  The RWOers know that this same old pile of shit is not going to improve or catch lightning in a bottle.

The Rockies take on the Texas Rangers in Arlington, TX before returning home to face the New York Mets and the Miami Marlins starting next Monday.  The Rockies are so bad at Coors Field you can count on them going 2-4 at HOME between those two crappy teams.  Season over if this comes to fruition.

A Riley Pint sighting! After being shut down for over almost a couple months after a horrid single appearance at Asheville, Pint was reassigned to short-season Boise. And he made his debut yesterday, and it’s fair to call it both promising and troubling: “Hard-throwing Boise starter Riley Pint – the Colorado Rockies first-round pick (No. 4 overall) in the 2016 draft – struck out the side in the home half of the first, but also walked three with a passed… Read more »

RMH (and others) – the season (in terms of playoff aspirations) was over before it began. This team was constructed horribly wrong. I knew (and frequently opined) that the offense was bad. But I was onboard with the “super” BP concept (although I thought it cost too much). IMO – even though he’s shown glimmers of hope, Bridich is in way over his head. We need a new Front Office……and Monfort(s) can’t interfere. I’m watching the D-Backs with Mike Hazen……he’s… Read more »

I was about to watch my DVR of the game after my company left, when I accidentally caught a sliver of Rangers happy-hopping on Channel 9. Ugh. Rats. Speed-watched the game to see what happened. Several times it looked to be in the bag. Then Wade couldn’t throw a strike, with no help before he came in due to a few different factors. Granted, a couple of freaky ones but mostly the head-scratching gascan-carriers of a bullpen. I heard Drew… Read more »

Full disclosure – I didn’t see 100% of this coming. I believe I predicted 79-83. That (low) prediction was made based on the anemic 2017 offense that the Rox FO did nothing to improve during the offseason. I thought we were lucky with (lack of key) injuries in 17, and I also thought Greg Holland was lucky…..so I backed 8 games off our 17 record. I DID think the BP would be solid in 18……so I missed that aspect of… Read more »

Yeah, the bullpen is pretty confounding. Weren’t they good for awhile – as expected?

The Big 4 free agent relievers (Davis/Shaw/McGee/Dunn) so far: 3-9, 6.44 ERA. That’s about $42 million in salary THIS YEAR ALONE for sub-replacement level relief pitching. Remember how JD Martinez was too expensive for us? He makes about $24 million this year – $18 million less than those 4 relievers. You could have just given Martinez a first baseman’s glove with an extra million bucks in each finger hole and still have done better in free agency than Bridich. And… Read more »
